Our trip to Grand Forks in our little "arrest me red" 2011 Toyota rental car went very well. And Ernie didn't even get stopped! As usual, I love watching the clouds and fields, and also as usual, I shoot pictures through the windshield as 55 MPH. The fields of soybeans, oats, corn and sugar beets are ripening, and we saw a lot of farmers out in their huge fields on their gigantic modern but prehistoric looking machinery, doing what they need to do to get in the crops and send them off to market. By the looks of these crops, the farmers will be doing quite well this year. I hope so. Farming is a very chancy occupation, isn't it.
